I have been working at Tri-Star Electronics International as an intern (Less than a year)
Great place for a first internship. Everyone is very friendly and hard working at the company. You get to see some pretty cool things.
As an engineering intern I was paired with a non engineering manager, which had it's pros and cons. Also the pay is not competitive at all. I understand it's a small operation, but most small companies pay engineering interns $15/hr not $11/hr.
Advice to Management
You guys do a great job keeping everyone on page and motivated. Only complaint was the pay.
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tri-Star Electronics International (El Segundo, CA) in April 2012.
I received a phone call from the Vice President of Operation, and because I was on vacation he simply asked me to come in for an in person interview when I got back. I came in the following week, handed him my resume and only interview for about five minutes. He then took me on a tour of the facility while telling me about the company and the internship. After the tour he gave me an offer.
It's an internship, you do it for experience not pay.
